Prince (1989) The Future EUR 7″

Very Brief:
Welcome to the 2nd Annual 7’s in 7 at Fun With Vinyl. For the entirety of the 7th month of the year, we are going to take a look at some 7″ singles from the 1960s through the 2010s. And, to smoothly transition us from Paisley June into 7’s in 7 is, once again, a Prince record… “The Future”…

The last single released from Prince’s ‘Batman’ soundtrack/album was “The Future”. It was only released in Europe and came in the formats of 7″ & 12″ vinyl and CD. The neat thing about this particular single is that the “Remix Edit” version is only available on this 7″ record. The 12″ and CD single both contained the full 6:44 remix only. It is also the first single from Prince that was released as a remix vice the album version or an edit of the album version. On the flip side is the LP version of “Electric Chair”. Being that it was a Euro-only release, the single was not eligible for the Billboard charts in the US but, the single did reach the pop Top 10 in The Netherlands and the Top 40 in Germany and Switzerland. The remixer was William Orbit.

Monday is Independence Day in the US so, all of my US friends are heading into a 3-day weekend. Here’s wishing you all a safe and fun holiday weekend. Enjoy yourself!

    Hi there,

    I’m ‘guessing’ this 7” is the only place to get this 7″ Edit ?
    And if so, is there any other Prince/Related Artists short versions that you still haven’t posted, or would like to ?
    Thanks for all your posts. xx

      It was only issued on this 7″ release, that’s correct. And, yes, of course, there’s always more records I’d like to get and post. Enjoy!
